Overview

Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 3000 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC GFCI protected outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a PV remote and 25 feet of cable. Heavy-duty, compact metal case design is among the smallest, most rugged inverters available at this power level. Conforms to OSHA 1926.404 (b) (1) (ii)

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, two fuse links rated at 250a each should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV3000GFCI's battery in each positive line.

Features

  • Converts DC power into 3000 watts of continuous 120V AC power
  • 15- and 20-amp outlets provide 120V AC power
  • Includes "Battery Saver" low voltage alarm/shutdown
  • Heavy-duty DC input terminals assure solid connection to battery. Dual connections provide high wattage to support heavy equipment loads.
  • Operating mode switch controls inverter operation.
  • Remote control jack provides optional remote monitoring and control (when used with FREE, included LED/switch module)
  • Remote Control LED/Switch Module controls and monitors your inverter from virtually anywhere within your vehicle with use of included extra-long cable. Allows multiple mounting options, including behind or below a dashboard or compartment. Features daisy-chain capability
  • Battery charge level LEDs indicate the approximate charge level (high/medium/low) of connected batteries
  • Connected load level LEDs indicate the approximate wattage load level (high/medium/low) of connected equipment
  • Sturdy extruded aluminum case stands up to the toughest work environments
  • Battery conservation charge dial conserves battery power by setting the low-load level at which the inverter automatically shuts off
  • Cooling fans provide cooler operation, lengthening inverter service life
  • Circuit breakers guard the inverter against potentially damanging equipment overload
  • Mounting flanges provide safe, fixed installation
  • Grooved cooling surface provides additional surface area for more efficient cooling
  • Grounding lug connects to vehicle ground

Package Includes

  • PV3000GFCI Inverter
  • Remote control LED/switch module (APSRM4)
  • 25-ft. remote cable
  • Warranty information
  • Instruction manual

RoHS compliant

Frequently Asked Questions

APS series inverters can accept and pass AC input power. They also have a built in battery charger circuit.
Yes, we offer Pure Sine Wave Inverters. Visit our Inverters product category and filter for Pure Sine Wave Output. A pure sine wave inverter produces a smooth, sinusoidal AC output with a low level of distortion for better performance. A PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) Wave inverter produces a multi-step AC output that approximates a sinusoidal AC output with a higher level of distortion.
APS-series inverters include a built-in battery charger. See our Inverter Buying Guide on tripplite.com for additional information and help with selection.

Additional FAQs may be available on the PV3000GFCI model support page.
